If you take care of a parent or grandparent and want to protect them from common scams, click to read about True Link below. They provide a debit card with a lot of additional smarts built-in.

For example, you can block purchases online or over the phone--one of the most common ways of exploiting seniors--while allowing in-person purchases. You can also set spending limits or per-purchase spending limits. And you can configure alerts for purchases, plus True Link is building up a database of scammers.

I'm an investor in True Link for a couple reasons. First, there are a lot of people currently taking care of other people, and a safer debit card can help protect against scams. But the bigger reason is that True Link has figured out how to inject programmatic smarts into the debit card space. If you... more »

A new security key protects your accounts from hijacking

Lots of people protect their Google accounts with two-factor authentication. If you use two-factor authentication, you might be interested in a new security key that works with Google. It makes it harder for bad guys to phish your account.

In addition, the security key uses an open protocol, so it can authenticate your logins for other websites too. Note that other websites need to add support for the Universal 2nd Factor (U2F) protocol by the Fido Alliance: https://fidoalliance.org/ .

If you don't use two-factor authentication yet, this isn't as good a match for you, although there are many reasons to consider enabling two-factor authentication. Read more about that here: https://www.mattcutts.com/blog/google-two-step-authentication/ .

If you're a high-profile individual, or someone whose account has been hacked before, or someone at high risk of being hacked (like a journalist or a dissident), consider getting one of these security keys. Personally, I'd recommend this for anyone tech-savvy or security-conscious enough that they already use two-factor authentication.___

Google Voice is getting better at MMS--yay!

Expanding carrier support for Google Voice MMS

When your sister texts you a picture of your newborn niece, it’s really important that you get it. For too long, however, Google Voice users would miss these messages for lack of MMS support.

We’ve been working with nearly 100 different North American carriers to enable this feature — including AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Bell Canada, Rogers, Telus, and many more — and starting today all these integrations are live. So enjoy those incoming pics, say goodbye to fomo (fear of missing out), and stay tuned for more Google Voice messaging improvements!

p.s. If you’re a carrier, and you want to enable MMS support for Google Voice, please let us know. We’re big fans of text messaging interoperability.___Google Voice is getting better at MMS--yay!

Sounds like there's a new Panda update slowly rolling out.

Panda update rolling out

Earlier this week, we started a slow rollout of an improved Panda algorithm, and we expect to have everything done sometime next week. 

Based on user (and webmaster!) feedback, we’ve been able to discover a few more signals to help Panda identify low-quality content more precisely. This results in a greater diversity of high-quality small- and medium-sized sites ranking higher, which is nice.

Depending on the locale, around 3-5% of queries are affected.___Sounds like there's a new Panda update slowly rolling out.

A nice/fast response.

MIUI Cloud Messaging & Privacy

Xiaomi is a mobile Internet company committed to providing high-quality products and easy-to-use Internet services. We believe it is our top priority to protect user data and privacy.  We do not upload or store private information or data without the permission of users.  This Q&A aims to address privacy concerns raised over the past 48 hours.

Q: What is MIUI Cloud Messaging?

A: Xiaomi offers a free service called Cloud Messaging as part of its MIUI operating system.  This service allows MIUI users to exchange text messages with each other free of SMS charges, by routing messages via IP instead of using the carrier’s SMS gateway.  

Q: How does Cloud Messaging work?  Does it store any private user information?

A: When a Mi phone is turned on, the Cloud Messaging service is automatically activated through IP communication protocol with Xiaomi servers, in order to provide the user with the free text messaging capability.  MIUI Cloud Messaging uses SIM and device identifiers (phone number, IMSI and IMEI) for routing messages between two users, in the same way as some of the most popular messaging services.  Some technical implementation details are provided below.  Users’ phonebook contact data or social graph information (i.e. the mapping between contacts) are never stored on Cloud Messaging servers, and message content (in encrypted form) is not kept for longer than necessary to ensure immediate delivery to the receiver.

Q: How does this relate to the privacy concerns raised about Xiaomi over the last 48 hours?  What’s your response?

A: A recent article in Taiwan and a related report by F-Secure raised privacy concerns by stating that Xiaomi devices are sending phone numbers to Xiaomi’s servers.  These concerns refer to the MIUI Cloud Messaging service described above.  As we believe it is our top priority to protect user data and privacy, we have decided to make MIUI Cloud Messaging an opt-in service and no longer automatically activate users.  We have scheduled an OTA system update for today (Aug 10th) to implement this change.  After the upgrade, new users or users who factory reset their devices can enable the service by visiting “Settings > Mi Cloud > Cloud Messaging” from their home screen or “Settings > Cloud Messaging” inside the Messaging app — these are also the places where users can turn off Cloud Messaging.  

We apologize for any concern caused to our users and Mi fans. We would also like to thank the media and users who have been sending us feedback and suggestions, allowing us to improve and provide better Internet services.

Q: How exactly does the MIUI Cloud Messaging system handle phone numbers?

A: For those interested in specific details about the MIUI Cloud Messaging implementation:

- The primary identifiers used to route messages are the sender and receiver’s phone numbers.  IMEI and IMSI information is also used to keep track of a device's online status.

- When a user sends a text message, if there is an Internet connection available, the Cloud Messaging system will attempt to route the message via IP.  If the receiver is offline (i.e. not immediately reachable via IP), the system falls back to sending a normal SMS message from the sender’s device.

- When a MIUI user opens a text message or a phonebook contact, or creates a new contact, the device connects to the Cloud Messaging servers, forwards the phone number of that contact and requests the online status of the corresponding user, which is indicated by a blue icon when that user is online or gray icon if that user is offline (or is not a Cloud Messaging user).  This allows the sender to immediately know whether they can text that user without incurring SMS costs.

- In any of these flows, the receiver’s phone number is only used to look up online status and to route messages.  No phonebook contact details or social graph information (i.e. the mapping between contacts) is stored on Cloud Messaging servers, and message content (in encrypted form) is not kept for longer than necessary to ensure immediate delivery to the receiver.

- The OTA system update made available today (Aug 10th) adds an extra layer of security by encrypting phone numbers whenever they are sent to Cloud Messaging servers.

- We will continue to make changes and improvements to this architecture as needed over time.___A nice/fast response.

Why not try something new for 30 days?

I'm starting a new 30 day challenge: the month of no "should." Instead of tediously working down a list of all the little chores and errands that I "should" be doing, I'll work to listen to what that little voice inside me wants to do. I think it will be interesting.

Last month I tried waking up earlier in the morning. I figured "My cats try to wake me up at 5 a.m. anyway, so why not give it a shot?" The hope was that I'd go to sleep earlier and wake up earlier. Instead, I still stayed up late, so I was pretty bleary when I got up early.

That's okay--even though the results were mixed, I still learned some useful lessons. For example, I learned that I'm not a very early morning person. :)

License-on-transfer (LOT) is a creative idea to reduce the patent troll problem. The idea is a bunch of companies like Newegg, DropBox, Google, Canon, Asana, and SAP have agreed that if they sell a patent, the other companies in the group get a license to that patent. Any company can join the network. Why not ask if your company wants to join?

Google+ ends its real names policy entirely with an apology and the hope that it can be more welcoming and inclusive.

When we launched Google+ over three years ago, we had a lot of restrictions on what name you could use on your profile. This helped create a community made up of real people, but it also excluded a number of people who wanted to be part of it without using their real names. 

Over the years, as Google+ grew and its community became established, we steadily opened up this policy, from allowing +Page owners to use any name of their choosing to letting YouTube users bring their usernames into Google+. Today, we are taking the last step: there are no more restrictions on what name you can use. 

We know you've been calling for this change for a while. We know that our names policy has been unclear, and this has led to some unnecessarily difficult experiences for some of our users. For this we apologize, and we hope that today's change is a step toward making Google+ the welcoming and inclusive place that we want it to be. Thank you for expressing your opinions so passionately, and thanks for continuing to make Google+ the thoughtful community that it is.___Google+ ends its real names policy entirely with an apology and the hope that it can be more welcoming and inclusive.

Very cool stuff.

Starting to test Google Domains

It's 2014 and it seems obvious, but across laptops, tablets and mobile devices, a website is one of the first places people go to find information about a business. But amazingly, our research shows that 55% of small businesses still don't have one. 

So as we explore ways to help small businesses succeed online (through tools like Google My Business [http://goo.gl/Ajvbn5] ), we thought it made sense to look more closely at the starting point of every business’s online presence - a website. And that starts with a domain name.

We’re beginning to invite a small number of people to kick the tires on Google Domains [http://goo.gl/pHvjoO], a domain registration service we’re in the process of building. Businesses will be able to search, find, purchase and transfer the best domain for their business - whether it’s .com, .biz, .org, or any of the wide range of new domains that are being released to the Web. 
 
Google Domains isn’t fully-featured yet, but we’re giving a small group of people the ability to buy and transfer domains through it and send feedback on their experience. (You currently need an invitation code to do so, sorry!) We want input on all the ways we can help make finding, buying, transferring and managing a domain a simple and transparent experience. We also want to make sure our customer support and infrastructure works flawlessly, and that we have the right additional services (like mobile website creation tools and hosting services from a range of providers, as well as domain management support). We're working with some of the top website building providers like +Shopify, +Squarespace, +Weebly, and +Wix.com  to help make that happen.

While we’re still building out all of the features, our goal is to make Google Domains more widely available soon. You can check out the first cut of what we’re working on at www.google.com/domains.___Very cool stuff.

But it literally takes under a minute to give your opinion to the FCC. Write whatever you feel, but if you like the internet and want it protected, you need to tell the FCC now. Right now, there's 21,549 comments on the FCC's proposed rules. I think there should be at least a hundred thousand comments from people on the web telling the FCC not to allow paid fast lanes on the net. Please tell the FCC what you think!___

In 10 days, I'll be running the Boston Marathon to raise money for cancer research. Join me with a donation for the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute! I'd love to raise $26,200, and so far we're at $25,000.

You need to read Michael Lewis' new book, Flash Boys. It's about Wall Street and computerized trading, but that description doesn't do it justice. The story is gripping, and it's not about some long-past threat to society. Lewis writes about events up to December 2013, just a few short months ago. There's a battle worth billions of dollars going on right now, you should know about it, and Michael Lewis makes it clear and fascinating. Flash Boys is the best book I've read so far this year.

If you haven't tried Google Public DNS, it's really fast and has great uptime. You just set your DNS servers to 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4. Give it a try!

Interesting. The Garmin 620 running/GPS watch can sync via wifi or Bluetooth Smart (low energy). Android support is just walking in the door: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.garmin.android.apps.connectmobile (although only some devices aren't supported right now).

The 620 also supports wifi syncing, which removes yet another reason to keep a Mac/Windows desktop computer around. It used to be that you'd keep Windows around for Office, games, or because it supported a certain peripheral. Windows becomes less essential in a world with Google Docs, Steam machines, and devices that support Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) or wifi directly, like wireless printers or scanners. Even my Fitbit can sync directly to my Moto X now, so I could probably squeak by without a desktop PC at this point.

I don't post SEO/search/webmaster videos here very often, because this is my personal G+ account, but this is an in-depth (8 minute!) video that explains some of the criteria we use when we decide whether a link is paid or not. Roughly, here are some of the important questions we ask:
- What is the value of the gift, product, or service?
- How close is the gift, product, or service to actual money?
- Is it an outright gift or a loan?
- Who is the intended audience?
- Is the intent of the gift to get links?
- Would the gift be a surprise to third party?

My guess is that anyone who has been involved with SEO for a while would intuitively understand these criteria, but it's helpful to clarify some of the questions we ask. Bear in mind that well over 99% of the time, paid links that pass PageRank are abundantly clear--because actual money is changinghands-... more »

Rachel Searles, a colleague at Google, just published a new young adult novel. It's a fun, fast-paced sci-fi romp: a boy named Chase wakes up with no memory on a strange planet. I won't go into spoilers, but if you've got kids who are ready for sci-fi, I think they'd enjoy it. I enjoyed it myself, even though I'm not officially a young adult any more. :)

Influx, the new sci-fi thriller by Daniel Suarez comes out next week. I got my hands on an early copy and I really enjoyed it.

In the book, a government agency (the Bureau of Technology Control) secretly clamps down on potentially disruptive new technology inventions. If you've asked yourself "Where's my flying car, like I thought we'd have when I was a kid?" then you'll sympathize. Suarez explores lots of different avenues in his story.

Previous books by Suarez felt so close to future-now that at times it's been unnerving. His last book, Kill Decision, covered a world in which drone warfare catches almost everyone unprepared. In another book, Suarez talks about an underground resistance that communicates within online roleplaying games. I've always wondered if that idea sparked the NSA to monitor World of Warcraft and similar... more »

Anyway, if you've been looking for your fill of sci-fi/cyberpunk, I think you'd enjoy Suarez's books.___

I enjoyed this.

(Note: I'm on a "no social media" 30 day challenge, but sometimes I just throw links out to the world without paying attention to where they land.)

Why not try a 30 day challenge?

Thinking about what you want to do in the New Year? Instead of making resolutions, why not try a few 30 day challenges? They're over faster, you learn neat things from them, and they can be a ton of fun. Think of them like experiments to figure out how to be happier or healthier or learn new skills.
